Gunmen kidnapped three students of the Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi, on Saturday, the police said on Monday.

Police spokesperson in Benue, DSP Catherine Anene, told newsmen that the students were kidnapped at about 10.20 p.m. while studying close to a school hall.

She said full investigations of the crime had started to track the kidnappers.

“Information was received from the school authority that on April 24, at about 10.20 p.m. some unknown men kidnapped three students who were studying.

“We received that information and we are on it. I know that we are very close. We will continue to do our best to ensure that we get to the root of this crime.

“For now, my advice to parents of the students is that they should remain calm. We are doing our best to ensure that they get their children back,’’ she said.

Anene declined to comment on whether the kidnappers had contacted the school authorities or the parents of the victims or not.

A student who claimed to have witnessed the incident said the heavily-armed kidnappers came on foot to the Engineering Department from where they took the victims into the bush.

The school management already suspended lectures and assured students of their safety while in school.

The vice-chancellor, Prof. Richard Kimbir, also confirmed the kidnap. (NAN)
